2001. Two CD version of EARLY MAN (previously released in a single-CD version encased between two slabs of slate), this time released on the Projekt label.

"There are some musicians who don't feel bound by traditional musical concerns like harmony, melody, and rhythm. Usually when those concepts are ignored, the results are avant-garde abstraction or aimless New Age meandering masquerading as meditation music. With Steve Roach, however, something else happens. For more than a decade, he's been exploring ever-deeper layers, mixing high-tech and primitive instruments to reach a root sound, a primordial state of consciousness. Early Man was originally released in 2000 as a limited edition packaged between two slabs of gray slate, representing its antediluvian origins. Now it's been released in a conventional package with an additional disc of remix material. All the Roach signposts are there: swampy textures merging electronics with heavily processed acoustic sounds from rocks, bones, and shakers, and pulsing, almost subliminal rhythms, when there are any grooves at all. The second disc remixes material from the first, but being Steve Roach, don't expect any dance beats. Instead, he goes even deeper and slower, morphing his sound world in a somber psychedelic trance."
--John Diliberto
